The remote host has an application installed that is affected by Arbitrary Code Execution Vulnerability.


The version of Adobe InDesign installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 13.1.1, or 14.x prior to 14.0.2. It is, therefore, affected by an Arbitrary Code Execution vulnerability due to unsafe hyperlink processing in the Webkit component of MacOS.
